    Overnight Blast From Incendiary Device Rocks Burcham Elementary School & ELB Neighborhood

    (August 5, 2005) -- The ELB neighborhood in the vicinity of Burcham Elementary School heard an attention-getting explosion at about 9:15 p.m. on August 4...and neighbors on the west side of the school (Chatwin Ave. between Wardlow and Monlaco Rds.) saw flames traveling along the ground near an inside fence on the school property.

    Information is unofficial as we post, but it appears some person(s) built and detonated a crude, flammable explosive device, perhaps using a bottle or a jug filled with flammable liquid.

    Burcham 8/5/04
    LBFD, LBPD and LBUSD all responded...and after FD doused the flames and PD spoke with neighbors, a second set of PD and FD personnel arrived and conducted a no-nonsense investigation.

    Burcham 8/5/04Investigators scoured the location for evidence while other officers interviewed neighbors in a methodical, thorough manner.
